Forrest Sheldon Postdoctoral Fellow

Nonlinear dynamics, disordered systems, inference and neuromorphic computing.

Dr Forrest Sheldon is a postdoc in the theory of cellular reprogramming at the London Institute. He studied physics at Duke University before completing his PhD at the University of California, San Diego. He joined the Center for Nonlinear Studies and the Advanced Network Science Initiative at Los Alamos National Laboratory as a postdoctoral fellow. Dr Sheldon uses tools from statistical mechanics and inference to study the nonlinear dynamics of networks, as well as their application to machine learning and optimization. At the London Institute, his work focuses on understanding the genetic regulatory networks underlying cellular differentiation.
